Ian McKellen knows how to turn tragedy into comedy.

While appearing on a Singaporean talk show, the out actor took a second to piss on the nation’s contentious ban on gay sex. McKellen explains:

I didn’t realize, as a gay man, that I’d be a criminal once I arrived – because it’s illegal for a man to make love to another man in Singapore.

I was rather naughty because I was on an early morning show… At the end of the interview, they asked what was I looking forward to doing while I was in Singapore. And I looked at the man, who was clearly straight, and said, `Can you recommend any decent gay bars?’, which would be illegal in every possible way.

I looked at the playback of the program afterwards and I’ve never seen the credits come up so quickly!

McKellen, you crazy, kooky queer!
